When Jake Peavy pitched for the Chicago White Sox, designated hitter Adam Dunn would often watch his innings from a video monitor in the clubhouse then relay his advice.
“Me and him, we’d talk in between every inning. What he saw; what I was doing well,” Peavy said. “Think about it, the amount of time we talked.”
Those conversations have been running through Peavy’s head for a few days now. He will face the White Sox on Saturday night for the first time since he was traded to the Red Sox on July 30.
Peavy spent parts of five seasons with Chicago, winning 36 games. He also had plenty of friends in the clubhouse and facing those same players will be a unique experience. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
